This week's "odd gadget of the week" spotlight goes to the Talking TV Remote Control Holder. It's nothing more than a little curved stand that can hold virtually any remote control. Then, when you take out the remote, it will periodically tell you to put it back in the stand. The quotes it has are "Where's the remote?", "Please put the remote back", and "Are you still using the remote?"

This is perfect for those days when you're at home by yourself and don't have anyone else to nag you. Or of course, if you lose the remote, and you can't get enough of your spouse and kids asking where it is, this holder will chime in as well.Here's my question: if someone went to all the trouble to create a device that irritates you until you put a remote control away, why can't someone invent something that yells at people to stop watching TV, get off the couch and actually go out and do something?

Anyway, the unusual concept and borderline creepy voice that the holder uses are what makes the Talking Remote Control Holder our odd gadget of the week.

More details, including samples of the voice clips, are here.

Check back next Thursday for our next installment of Odd Gadget of the Week.
